The New Zealand Police is looking for an Assistant to the Police Attaché based at the New Zealand Consulate-General in Guangzhou. The Police Attaché Office (Guangzhou) is brand new, and we are looking for a skilled translator, policing support person, and office administrator to join the young and dynamic New Zealand team. This role reports directly to the Police Attaché in Guangzhou, and has a functional reporting relationship with the New Zealand Police Support Manager based in Beijing. The role has lots of exciting and interesting work inside and outside of the office. Some internal travel to other provinces in China will be required, and the role requires absolute trust and confidence working with the local Public Security organs on sensitive criminal investigations.
We are looking to fill this locally-employed staff (LES) position as soon as possible, with a proposed start date of mid-September 2014. All accommodation, medical, taxation and other costs associated with living in China are the personal responsibility of the successful applicant. The role has a two-year timeframe, reviewable after that period.
In this role you will be responsible for providing the Police Office administrative support, translation support, and assistance with relationship building to help ensure the efficient and smooth running of the New Zealand Police presence in Southern China.
